Although there are often new items on the menu, Jim's has been serving great basic Italian food for almost fifty years, in the same location, using the same family recipes. Go hungry because the portions are ample. BYOB if you like. Everything is freshly made.

Jim's has been around for a long time. Hoagies, pizza, pasta, sandwiches. The one thing that still holds up to this day is Sr.'s creation the Dagwood. Love it. This place is a Bellefonte institution. Loved by locals. Worth a shot if you've never been. Mostly a take out place for the family.

This is a locals place. Despite that, as travelers were seated directly and served promptly. The food was pretty good too.

The food was great. I had homemade beef tortellini and my friends had spinach ravioli. The sauce was sweeter than I'm used to with Philly and South Jersey Italian food but it was still yummy. The atmosphere is very casual.

Good food. Portions hearty. If going with a large group you will be cramped. But also offers take out!

Jim's provides a truly authentic Italian restaurant experience. The food is phenomenal, the experience is authentic and the wait staff very friendly. If you are looking for an extravagant venue, Jim's does not have it. Seating is limited and the restaurant closes at 8PM most evening. Get to the restaurant early on before dinner rush, make sure you get the... More

For sure, the best Italian food in Centre County. Food I would recommend: baked Italian sub, Jim's sub, chef salad with house dressing, and spaghetti with meat sauce. Don't judge the place from the outside…its the food that matters.

Everything is good from here. Fast, prompt service... the girls at Jim's are on the ball! Have yet to have bad food from here. Don't forget to try the house dressing
